UK forecast for the next 5 days


Largely dry with sunny spells and a few showers.


Many places will stay dry today with sunny spells. However, cloud will thicken at times to give a few isolated showers, perhaps wintry at first. It will feel less cold than recently in lighter winds.


Showers will be confined to the far northwest tonight, leaving a largely dry night elsewhere. A frost will develop for many places with a few fog patches in the southeast.


Skies will gradually cloud over from the northwest, but sunny spells are likely for much of the day in the south. Outbreaks of rain will slowly spread across the north.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Dry for many on Thursday, although rain slowly moving into the northwest. Mostly cloudy on Friday with rain moving east. Sunshine and showers on Saturday. Milder than of late.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 24 Mar 2018 to Monday 2 Apr 2018:

The weekend will be unsettled with sunshine and showers for most, although some longer spells of rain are possible, with perhaps some hill snow in the north. It will be windy, with coastal gales at first. Temperatures will be slightly below normal and locally rather cold, with a risk of overnight frosts, chiefly in the north. During the final week of March the UK's weather is likely to stay changeable, with showers and rain at times, interspersed by drier and brighter interludes. There remains some uncertainty in the forecast for the Easter Weekend, but we are likely to see slow moving weather systems across the UK, with wetter weather more probable in the south. and with drier, colder conditions in the north albeit with a risk of snow at times.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 Apr 2018 to Tuesday 17 Apr 2018:

There is significant uncertainty in the forecast detail during this period, but it does look as though slow moving weather systems will affect the UK. There will most probably be a balance between Atlantic frontal systems affecting the south and west at times, with perhaps colder and perhaps drier conditions in the north. However, further snow is possible at times, more especially in the colder north. It will be windy in places with below average temperatures; some overnight frosts are likely during early April. Towards the middle of the month confidence becomes very low, but some warmer days are expected and it may become drier generally.
